So, i came across this recipe when i was searching for stuff to make in Ramazan. I bookmarked it, and totally forgot about it.
Yesterday i was browsing through my bookmarks when i saw it again, and i said why not try it today (as my sister's friends were coming over).
I tweaked the recipe a tiny bit. You can find the original recipe here.
